Stockholm Prize in Criminology

Carnegie Mellon faculty member and operations researcher Al Blumstein has won this year’s Stockholm Prize in Ciminology, along with Terrie E. Moffitt. According to the prize announcement:

Blumstein’s analyses of the variations in the frequency of offending in careers of active criminals in US jurisdictions have also had a global influence on justice policies and practices, as well as on the rapid increase in the influence of developmental and life-course criminology.

The prize will be awarded in June 2007 (and is worth 1 million Swedish Kroner). Al has been President of all three of ORSA, TIMS, and INFORMS.
